Statement: Hull City Supporters’ Committee minutes

In June 2018 the FSF was invited by Hull City to discuss the club’s membership scheme, which replaced the traditional season ticket model.

In addition to this issue the subject of the club’s fractious relationship with our affiliate Hull City Supporters’ Trust (HCST) was also covered, as we attempted to help rebuild relations between the club and its fans.

While we received a friendly welcome from vice chairman Ehab Allam it was clear that the club was not willing to change its ticketing policy.

On Monday it was brought to our attention that the club’s Supporters’ Committee minutes referenced this meeting and ascribed views to the FSF to which we do not subscribe. Despite requests to remove or alter these references the club has refused to do so.

In June’s meeting with the club we made clear that we would not endorse the club’s approach to concessions.

We believe a club’s ticketing policy should be set in consultation with its supporters and that should include a supporters’ trust where one exists. In addition we feel concessionary prices must be respected in order to make football as affordable and accessible as possible.

We will always be available to work with clubs and supporters to improve all aspects of matchdays for home and away fans and we remain open to further dialogue with Hull City.
